English Language Learner students from West Hempstead Middle School and High School reflected on the challenges and successes they faced this year during a potluck luncheon of international cuisine.

Students from each ENL class prepared traditional ethnic dishes and created posters highlighting their greatest achievements from the 2016-17 school year as well as their goals for the future. The buffet spread featured cuisines from the native countries of fellow classmates, including Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia, Haiti, China, Guatemala, Jordan and Hungary.

Following the luncheon, students played soccer and performed cultural dances for an audience of staff and students. They also participated in a local tradition when they honored Middle School ENL teacher Candice Walker by singing Happy Birthday and enjoying a Carvel Ice Cream cake

The district would like to thank all of the ENL teachers who made this celebration of diversity at West Hempstead a success.
